   It was this checkin:
   Revision 1.4897 / (view) - annotate - [select for diffs] , Mon Mar 3 20:22:

Vinicius, can you reconstruct whatever you did that caused
lisp/ChangeLog to be saved in Latin-1?  Maybe we can find a pitfall
in Emacs that you fell into, and then we could fix it.
At end of ChangeLog there is the following setting:

;; Local Variables:
;; coding: iso-2022-7bit
;; End:

Shouldn't it be?:

;; Local Variables:
;; buffer-file-coding-system: iso-2022-7bit
;; End:

I only could save ChangeLog when buffer-file-coding-system is set to iso-2022-7bit. But if buffer-file-coding-system (or other suitable coding variable) isn't explicity set,
I got an error message when saving ChangeLog.

The error message is:
  Wrong type argument: number-or-marker-p, nil
